Hopes fading for missing surfskier - Australia

Wednesday, 15 October 2008 03:41 |

Editor: It's with a heavy heart that we publish this story - David Scheen from Victoria, Australia is missing after setting out on a training paddle yesterday.  I met David in Hawaii earlier this year where he paddled the Molokai Challenge - he's a strong paddler, but the story looks grim.  Keep him in your thoughts and let's hope for a positive outcome...

Here at HQ we are very excited to announce the launch of our first Surfski calendar. We have spent hours poring over our image library to narrow our best pictures down to the fourteen awesome shots featured below. These range from Alan van Gysen's in-boat and in-wave shots to Anthony Grotes' spectacular Durban World Cup and big surf photographs. For balance we selected two moody beach sunrise and sunset photos.

The calendar was professionally crafted by a graphic artist using original high-resolution images, and is printed on quality paper.  It opens to display a glossy A4 picture with another A4 page below containing the days of the month.
